So feeling it out for Early to Mid May.

I'm not initially from up this far in the state so looking for suggestions as to the meeting place.

Try and keep it equally distanced for IL and WI members so we can get the best turnout possible.

Think it would be best to have a campgrounds available (State Park, etc) so that the campers can camp but still have hotels near by if camping is not your thing.

Looking to brings Bags, washers, and horseshoes along with for some friendly competition.

I foresee it being BYOB....unless people want to pitch in for Kegs....which I am not opposed to.

I'll be away most of April at a military school, some coordination will be needed to obtain the campground and such.

Let me know what everyone thinks.

If its just me....dammit I'll go alone.

John

well looking online...not much up there that allows tasy adult beverages.

This place does as long as it is 100 ft+ of a parking area....

Seems pretty nice and lots of room...

Only badside...its somewhat close to Chicago

McHenry County Conservation District

Any you guys have any thoughts?

Only place I can think of is the State park just North of Kewanee. I know it's not very northern but It's really the only one I can think of lol.
